Introducing Camera 3.0
  ""This is the next big evolution of the camera," said CEO and Founder
   Dr. Ren Ng. "The move from film to digital was extraordinary and
   opened up picture taking to a much larger audience. Lytro is
   introducing Camera 3.0, a breakthrough that lets you nail your shot
   every time and never miss a moment. Now you can snap once and focus
   later to get the perfect picture.""

  "Mr. Ng explained the concept in 2006 in his Ph.D. thesis at
   Stanford University, which won the worldwide competition for the
   best doctoral dissertation in computer science that year from
   the Association for Computing Machinery. Since then Mr. Ng has
   been trying to translate the idea into a product that can be
   brought to market - and building a team of people to do it."

  "The Doctoral Dissertation Award to Ren Ng of Stanford University.
   He was named for his study of Digital Light Field Photography,
   an image-based technique applied to a scientific imaging
   instrument for recording scene appearance. Unlike conventional
   photography, light fields of radiance permit manipulation of
   viewpoint and focus after the image is captured, and offer
   improvements to current scientific microscopy, security surveillance
   and sports and commercial photography." ... "Financial support and
